You can use the HiFiMan ones or Audio-Technica AD900X pads fit them, or if you want something really classy the AT leather ones from the W5000 and ANV-W3000 (pricey though).


thanks for the answer, so I can use both ad900x and the hifiman pads without any sort of mods right ?

Yes :]

Thanks , I will order some ath/hifiman velour then, which one do you think is more comfortable ?

Conquerator did a comparison of them all, use the "search this thread" function and find his comparison - he concludes the HiFiMan pleather ones are the "best", but to his tastes.
Personally I'm going to try the HiFiMan velours.

I don't recommend the AD900X velours, they sounded bad although comfy.

Of the cheaper choices I recommend the 900X pleather [smallest diameter] and HiFiMAN pleathers/velours.

I tried looking around for hifiman velour pic , dont they have this black plastic ring on the attachment ? Do I took them off first ?

 

I know for a fact you cant put beyer velour on it like the hifimans

Yes, the rings are easily removable. The leather is just put over, no glue.

then I just sleeve it over to the W1000x? can you show me pictures of them , so I can get an idea on how to sleeve them , since I sort of remember one side of the w1000x is actually bigger than the other

You just remove the rings and slide the pads over.

hmm I'll have to try the Hifiman Velours, I have a spare pair lying around actually!

 

But I went with L3000 Pads my self, which where $100 they doo sound amazing though

 

and with regards to price, the DX1000 is know to have cracking issues.... EWWWWWW and last time I checked it was selling for around $700-1000 or so depending on who you bought it from. Last time I REALLY wanted one it was a $1000 headphone, I still think the LCD XC would be better, plus some one told me in a pm that the DX 1000 likes bright sources.... which is to me NO GOOD, as my closed headphones are portable only and my portable source is the OMG ORGANIC hm801 xD

 

I think the LCD XC will be my next upgrade <3. I might even list my D2k and W1000x in a month to see if I can just JUMP up to the LCD XC, spent about $700 on both after ALL the mods >.>

But LCD-XC is $1799...
http://www.audeze.com/products/headphones/lcd-xc

Even if you get it used, I don't think it'll quite reach $1000.

Fostex TH900 is definitely cheaper by a good margin. Heck, you can even get a Denon D7000 that would sound almost (99%) like the TH900 for $700-$800.

In its defense, I must admit the LCD-XC is a very nice headphone. It images very well, and it has a very black background. I almost wanted to replicate its imaging capabilities while modding the DT770, but I finished my mod with a more midrange-centric sound instead. I guess I'm a midrange-head until the end.

im not a fan of any headphone that likes bright sources.  to me, the energy of a bright source/amp only masks the initial attack of a headphone that could show it's true flaws of low level, initial detail which to me, if masked, is cancelling out a huge part of the musical enjoyment.  so if it needs a bright source, there's probably something it's trying to hide

It's worth mentioning that the XC are a bit wee heavy...

The Beyerdynamic T1 is a really stunning phone and deserving of flag ship status, its also a very comfortable to wear for extended listening it falls in that $700-$800 price bracket.
